Short description of the project

The CIA p-LABs project responds to the specific scopes of the OPCW Plant Biomarker Challenge because it will improve the detection of different CWs related compounds by thoroughly testing the current extraction methodologies, and introducing innovative non-destructive spectroscopic and multivariate machine learning methodologies using leaves as biosensors for detecting CWs signature in the agroecosystems. Integrating complementary analytical chemical methods, the plant physiological responses, machine learning jointly with biomonitoring of plant health, will allow CIA p-LABs to set the highest environmental and human health protection measures towards the CWs impact on human health, environment and agricultural production.
